Mets manager Terry Collins is sticking with the same lineup as Game 3, which means Juan Lagares on the bench and rookie Michael Conforto in the lineup. Left-hander Steven Matz will make his second postseason start after allowing three runs in five innings against the Dodgers in the NLDS.

CF Dexter Fowler

With a left-hander on the mound Cubs manager Joe Maddon has swapped Jorge Soler and Kyle Schwarber in the batting order. Javier Baez moves up to the seventh spot and David Ross, not Miguel Montero, gets the start at catcher while batting behind the pitcher.
